Gatekeeping the Infuriating
  • I don't actively discourage people from posting because I don't find their opinion is good enough to post

    Like do you want me to just not moderate so people post porn and racist shit? Because I could just not and that is what you're going to get

    I am talking about the kind of commenters who actively go out of their way to put an OP down deciding that somebody can't post their opinion of something because it isn't infuriating enough

    The point is everyone has different thresholds of what one person finds infuriating, I expressed what doesn't infuriate me but I haven't actively gone a crusade to remove posts because I don't personally find them infuriating

    The modlog is fully transparent you can see for yourself what content is removed and why

    I suppose you just don't want people to moderate? I do this as a volunteer because nobody else wants too. As it turns out few people really want the responsibility of doing this shit, it's thankless and not for everyone

    The amount of false reports I see for things that aren't a criteria to be removed people just do it because they don't like what was said

    Those silently responding are doing exactly what I said I find infuriating, because something doesn't infuriate them rather than just move on and find another post they are actively down voting, creating a hostile environment for people who want to join the community but haven't yet because of how hostile it can be, it's elitest behaviour and not constructive

  • The Murder Game - 2003

    https://youtu.be/LCdypqCdydE

    Age wise I dunno if it holds up. the episodes are available on YouTube as at this point it's pretty much nearly lost media: https://youtu.be/nRTlgcCmu3U

    It's an acted out gameshow where people have to solve a murder. The premise is quite interesting, near the end of the episodes they have an elimination where they send 2 people to a place and the murder searches from them. Only 1 person makes it back.

    I thought I'd share this. I remember seeing this on the BBC when I was a kid

  • This comment thread is on fire, there are interesting discussions going on but most of it is getting to be to vitriolic for my tastes.

    Locking this shit down. We're here for the memes... Not whatever the fuck is going on down here.

    For those here for the drama, scroll back up. There is no salvation here!

  • Is there someway to stop this?
  • Your argument of semantics is not constructive to this conversation. You absolutely know what I am talking about yet you continue

    Spam is spam. The definition fits whether you like it or not I am not discussing it further.

    We are arguing over the proper use of this site. When I say site what I mean is platform and you know that. You're just arguing about that again for the sake of it. Again, not constructive. Frankly it's obnoxious

    When promoted to me by the site admins it's always encouraged to subscribe to communities. Why is it there if you people aren't supposed to use it? Why should I be forced into seeing posts from a user whose only purpose is to spam content. If all they are doing is reposting the same content over and over . What good is it for me to block multiple communities because of a single user? You're bringing a tank to a knife fight. Then that restricts me from seeing posts from an entire community based on the actions of a single individual. Whereas blocking 1 person only stops me from seeing their posts. Oh well, who cares. If a user doesn't want to see someone's posts they can block them if they want too. They are well within their rights to do so.

    Why do I have to deal with the inconvenience of seeing the same post because someone doesn't have good etiquette when using the website?

    You missed some pretty key details about how constantly posting the same post hinders it getting proper engagement. I know this shit, I have browsed this place long enough to understand that pretty well.

    You are arguing a different purpose for communities. My idea of the purpose of communities is having them as individual spaces. I have no issues if someone makes a LemmyShitpost or a Mildly Infuriating on another instance. That doesn't bother me. The two communities can co-exist. It's especially useful if it's a case of two communities instances being defederated so allowing the posts to be seen by as many people as possible.

    People are actively telling you they do not like posts being spammed across multiple communities. That is lowering the quality of content here on Lemmy. Which makes Lemmy a worse platform than alternative places. Whilst well intended it isn't a viable strategy. Not for keeping people happy.

    It just clogs up the All feed with the same post making any other posts hidden. This is not a good thing. It reflects poorly on this platform.

    Imagine if today everyone decided I am going to post an article to every news community across all instances. That would get pretty chaotic pretty fast, but I guess that's not spam to you is it?

    Anyway. I am ending my discussion with you here. I have said what I needed to say. I made my points pretty clear where I stand on this.

  • Gatekeeping the Infuriating
  • this in the form of my file naming scheme. I know it fucks me over later. Yet I still do it

  • SuperMega are down! I repeat, SuperMega are down!
  • Don't meet your heroes

  • Gatekeeping the Infuriating

    It goes without saying, One thing that annoys me is whenever a topic comes up about someone finding something mildly infuriating and there is always that 1 person who has to decide it isn't because of x, y and z reasons

    Like I guarantee, if I were to do the same it'd be on every post with tiles that were out of order, upside down because it's one of the few things I look at and shrug because it's whatever... but I'm not about to do that. People are allowed to be infuriated by things that don't necessarily infuriate you.

    Any kind of Gatekeeping in general.... very infuriating.

    Anyway see this post as an open invitation to vent. Comment below. What infuriates you? and what thing that typically infuriates others, doesn't infuriate you.

    Whenever I hit 'show context' it takes me to the original post and not the actual context
  • This comment is mildly infuriating. It definitely fits the community

  • Musk threatens to sue researchers who documented the rise in hateful tweets
  • Being totally against free speech as an advocate for free speech... couldn't be musk!

  • Is there someway to stop this?
  • When you are sending out invites to friends you aren't sending 50 invitations to all 50 of your friends. You are sending 1 invitation to 1 friend.

    The problem is the amount of which it is being reposted, and the frequency of the reposts. It's literally not good for the website if you are just spamming the same content. I hate arguing semantics. If it's repeated reposts, the word is spam. Unless you have another word for it. It is called spam that's just how it is.

    Again, you haven't really addressed what I'm saying. It's low effort to repost the same post. It buries discussion when browsing All. If there are 10 posts of the same post; conversation is spread thin. I'm not against the reposting happening, I'm against the frequency in which a post is reposted.

    If I post 5 of the same article to 5 different communities in quick succession, people are going to only click 1 of 5 articles. Person A might go to the first one, Person B might go to the third article. Both leave comments but again, because they are sent to multiple communities in quick succession the article hasn't got the same chance to see people discuss it Where as if it's posted later, someone can respond to it and an organic discussion can form because it's just the 1 article.

    I'm sorry, but to repost so quickly one after the other. It's self-sabotage. It doesn't make sense. It's not productive to the website.

    I'm not saying you can't have communities with the same content, but why the hell would I subscribe to 1 community if it has the same content as another. That to me defeats the point of a fediverse. You can have multiple communities, why do I want to go to another community that's exactly the same as another? What's the point with that?

    The problem with the fediverse is that subscribed communities isn't prioritised so most people just stick to all without subscribing to individual communities so they can see all the content they're interested in.

    Having multiple communities is great, You get to find the one that best suits your ideas of how a community should be run. If you don't like the mods you can decide to use a different one. If you want more community you can find more similarly themed communities to get more content you're interested in, but again I ask. What is the point of subscribing to Art Community 1 & 2 if Art Community 2 is just a duplicate of the first community. To me that is not the point of the fediverse.

    It's not organic to constantly spam reposts. Also I'm talking about the LITERAL definition of spam:

    "spam noun : unsolicited usually commercial messages (such as emails, text messages, or Internet postings) sent to a large number of recipients or posted in a large number of places"

    as defined by Merriam Webster

    Something on-topic can still be spam, if it's posted to a large number of places it's spam.

    Trust me, I've had a long time to get to grips with Lemmy, I got LemmyShitpost and MildlyInfuriating off the ground. It wouldn't be where it is if I hadn't posted how I did, but I learned a bit and when I say it doesn't work or help Lemmy to do what you're suggesting. I mean it.

  • Is there someway to stop this?
  • People are saying they don't like the spam, it's ultimately the choice of the user if they do not want to see repeated posts of the same item.

    I get posting to 2 communities of the same, but if you are filling multiple communities with the same post. You aren't really adding anything. With the fediverse people can subscribe to multiple communities with what you're suggesting, if everyone were to spam posts, which this is what it is. It's spamming the same post across multiple communities. What you're going to end up with is a bunch of redundant communities with a severe lack of orginal content. Which harms the community they are posting to more than it helps.

    Why should I subscribe to both [email protected] and News@SmallLemmy if the small community is just reposted content from the first community. I get what you're trying to say, but this kind of thing harms the communities more than it helps

    They can do this if they want too, but I'm not going to bother subscribing to a community with duplicate posts. That's not the point of the fediverse.

    The beautiful thing about Lemmy is you can have multiple communities co-existing, producing their own unique content and be subscribed to all of them at once. Nothing against cross-posting but this doesn't feel at all an organic way of sharing content. It feels forced and hampers discussion.

    People who are scrolling through all can see these posts, and will need to pick between 3 of the same post if they want to discuss it, It will spread comments thin. It makes more sense to just post it to one, then maybe wait before posting it again to another community.

  • Is there someway to stop this?
  • Wtf are you talking about, repeatedly posting the same post across multiple communities in short succession would be called spam. What else are you calling it?

  • Help Xi Find His Hair!
  • It isn't, I do not remove posts for "Orientalism" like Lemmy.ml and that certainly won't be done by Lemmy.World Admins. Happy shitposting

  • Is there someway to stop this?
  • Click the elipses and block the user, you won't see their posts anymore. Because of how the fediverse is, some people post their content to multiple communities and it results in spam. Currently blocking is the only way to get rid of it.

  • A new trend in tipping emerges
  • Wow, this is worthless lol Not tipping is better than this, at least not tipping can't disappoint you more than this can

  • Regulation could disrupt the booming “kidfluencer” business
  • So they should, child labour laws should apply to these kids just as any other business. The money earned from these videos need to be paid to the child. Even if it's in a trust fund where the kid can take it out when they're old enough and can make better decisions. Like child tv stars they need to only have to work a set amount of hours, no longer.

    When I say this I'm talking about toy channels, I'm not talking about the mumfluencer channels. This kind of constant forceful filming of their childrens every moment should be stopped, kids need to have privacy, it's known to be detrimental to their mental health when they're constantly documented, and they are also far more likely to get bullied because of it.

    I can't begin to imagine all my bad childhood memories being immortalised thanks to a pushy parent who saw me as a money machines more than a person.

  • The Hi and Lo directions on my range’s knobs
  • That should be illegal, throw it out

  • Blah blah deleted
  • You broke our rules, lmao why are you salty about it posting here? Read the rules before posting, it's not that hard

    It was a really easy request, if you have to make a reactionary meme when you get spoken to by a mod I'd hate to see what you do if you were banned... Which you weren't, your post was just removed and I asked you to repost it. Pretty easy stuff lol

  • Want to see how many remember

    I grew up on this man's epic fail toy reviews and I am scared it has been 13 years since they were last uploaded. I was 15.

    What perfectly normal thing can't you be around anymore due to something you experienced?

    Mine is a pretty tame example: I never minded the smell of garlic was fine around it... but I took a job for DHL and they had these large tubs of garlic for horses that had to go out to people. There were about 10 of them coming down the belt.

    Now I can't stand it. I'm just reminded of how strong that smell was I was actually gagging. The tubs were heavy, the handles were feedble. Some of the tubs were damaged so I got a bit on me.

    I stunk of it for the rest of the shift. It wasn't even a normal garlic smell it was just so powerful and nauseating.

    2016 I found a name for my identity, I was 22

    It's now 2023, and I fully embrace my identity! To those who are still finding themselves, no matter how young/old you are; people are more complex than words can define; asexuality is a spectrum so even if you don't find a label. That doesn't matter.

    Even if the answer isn't with you right now, you may find the answer come to you later. You know your sexuality better than anybody else.

    You are worthy of love! Much appreciation for all aces.
